JNF believes that all individuals should have access to safe recreation and leisure opportunities, regardless of ability or background.
The Sdot Negev Regional Council, located in Israel’s Negev, is made up of 16 Gaza envelope communities. Situated just 6km from the Gaza border, these communities have been a regular target of rocket and mortar attacks, and most recently the incendiary kites. The ongoing security situation has affected the entire population causing immeasurable psychological trauma and anxiety, especially for those with special needs.
The JNF Rosh Hashanah Campaign is dedicated to building a 380m2 Leisure Centre for the special needs members of the Sdot Negev community. The state of the art amenity will provide services and tools for enrichment including sports and music, as well as providing support networks, educational resources and social services. The centre will also provide a safe house for times of need.
This Rosh Hashanah, please help enhance the health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable. Your support will assist the special needs community in the Sdot Negev region by providing a safe and nurturing environment to grow and develop.
